Ínstallation
  • Use all specified fasteners. See "General Notes".
  • Set hanger back flange tight against block wall when built to desired level, then continue with additional courses to complete wall height. Joist should be tight into back of hanger when possible. Maximum gap permitted is 6mm.
  • MINIMUM 3 COURSES OF SOLID BLOCK (675MM MASONRY) REQUIRED ABOVE HANGER WITH MORTAR FULLY CURED BEFORE APPLYING LOAD.

  • Do not stack blocks or heavy loads on the joists during construction unless the joists have additional support to take the full load of the blocks vertically and horizontally.
